In case you missed it, This Week’s Meta Weekly was the first DLM Tournament with the new box, Witch’s Sorcery. We had several decks from the new box making it to Top 32, with appearances from Witchcrafter, Evil Eye, and Spellbook decks. However, at the end of the day, we had old favourites Dark Magician and Shiranui in the finals, with oHiMi pulling out the win in the end with the help of Heat Wave and Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer. We got a hold of him for an interview, so without further ado, let’s begin!
Anything you want to tell us about yourself?
I originally got into Duel Links because of some friends who don’t play anymore. At first I didn’t care too much but then I saw a competitive looking Last Gamble Neos deck (in the Street Replay) and I thought to myself “if Elemental HEROs are actually good in this game I will keep playing”.
Looks like Elemental HEROs are your favourite deck in Duel Links, why is that?
GX just hit a soft spot with me, I’ve first watched it at the right time and I really like the E-Heroes’ visual design and how they played in the anime. Of course most of it is not really viable, but Elemental HERO Shining Flare Wingman was the coolest shit ever when Jaden first summoned it.
Why did you go with Dark Magician? How do you feel about the new box meta?
Since the new Box got released yesterday, I thought people would bring a higher amount of new decks than is actually justifiable. I haven’t tested against Evil Eye at all, but against Witchcrafters I got pretty rekt with my main deck of Crystrons. So I decided to bring Dark Magician because it farms the new decks.
Anything you’d like to say about your Decklist?
If you decide to play two Magician of Dark Illusion, you have four flex spots with Dark Magician. I feel like for this meta and the decks I faced I made the right call of maining Cosmic Cyclone and siding Karma Cut, but maybe next week you might wanna do it the other way around. Oh and Heat Wave is god, whenever I had it in hand it won me the duel. Like you don’t need it, but resolving it feels pretty nice.
If you could make one change to Duel Links right now, balance or otherwise, what would you make?
Lastly, do you have any Shoutouts you would like to make?
Shoutout to my mates in DF and the guys in the CH Discord server. Love you all. :)
